Nick Phoenix has released a cinematic video for the song “Andromeda” from his Wide World album. The video was shot in Pasadena, CA on the historic campus of the California Institute of Technology and various locations in the Mohave Desert.
Explaining about “Andromeda”, Phoenix says “The song is about an astronomer who dreams of visiting the Andromeda Galaxy and he designs a propulsion system. The song delves into whether he is looking to escape this world and all its pitfalls, or is he just secretly in love with his assistant here on earth?”. He continues “We chose the Caltech campus because the setting speaks to groundbreaking science, but has a bit of a romantic, throwback feel. The desert settings are in line with what some distant planet’s surface might look like. We hope everyone embraces the imagery and how it relates to the song”.
